The paper titled "Stochastic Performance Evaluation of Hierarchical
Routing for Large Network" by Kamoun and Kleinrock does give a result for
optimal levels of hierarchy to be ln(n), where n is the number of nodes,
in a symmetric distributed network, for routing purposes.

This has amused me for months.

The Thus Come One of Pervasive Lights and Proper Views told her, "You are
supposed to fall down into The Avici Hell because of your evil karma, and
experience the acute suffering without any respite.  In the cold Hell, the
offenders will encounter the severely cold wind and be tortured by the
sudden chill. In the feverish Hell of heat, the offenders will experience
sudden heat waves, which are brought about by the hot wind."
